BC Ferries

About this point of interest


As one of the largest ferry operators in the world, BC Ferries are a must-see for everybody visiting the coastal regions of British Columbia. With a fleet of 35 vessels that regularly travel 25 separate routes throughout the Gulf Islands, these ferries deliver people, critical goods, and services to remote areas of the province. More than just supporting the region’s communities through shipping, BC Ferries also endeavors to improve the health and well-being of coastal residents through its environmental and community investment programs. For BC Ferries, reducing the environmental footprint of its ships is key to maintaining pristine coastlines and healthy fisheries.
